Mostly cost honestly, commercial electronic scales are expensive. A quick google puts them at $375 where the old style are only $175

And really, why would they ever buy a new one? How long as that doctors office existed? They probably bought the scale 20 years ago and haven't had to replace it yet. Also, the electronic ones are spring based, and can suffer somewhat from drift errors when their springs age. They need periodic calibration. The balance style is much less sensitive to this, their wear modes don't really screw with their calibration (that would only happen if you chipped the weights).

If you want to check, you can order cannabis test kits (that's just the first of a hillion jillion links) for super cheap. You've likely got another day or two before it's out of your system, so if you want to try to confirm, order a kit with next-day delivery and give it a go.

metal studs are, in fact, a thing. They're less common in residential construction (single family homes) and more common in condos, apartment complexes, and commercial spaces (where walls are less likely to be load bearing). As far as finding out what's really behind your walls, the best way is to take a look, you could drill a smallish hole in the wall, somewhere you'll be covering with a cabinet anyway, the either look directly in or use a [boroscope]( to look in behind the walls. You should be able to see either wood studs or metal studs within 8-12 inches to one side or the other of your hole. If you do have metal studs, you can use self-drilling screws to mount to them, though I'm not sure about how that would work with large items like cabinets, I'm by no means an expert on hanging cabinets or on hanging things to metal studs.

I have the ADC ADSCOPE 615 Platinum Professional Clinician Stethoscope with AFD Technology, 30.5 inch, Tactical. Forty bucks, handled and shipped. Best stethoscope I've ever used. Length is perfect for wrapping around neck and putting head in front scrub chest pocket to keep warm for use.

This one looks promising for a student, though.

I'll give you a tip on how to keep a stethoscope from being stolen, while I'm here (it happens to everyone). There are two places I keep my stethoscope - around my neck and on my dresser. It's always one of those two places.

This is the one I use day to day. I had the Cardiology III throughout my EMT class and in my job (at the time, I got it for a steep discount because a friend of mine works a medical supply store). I prefer the ADC because it's inexpensive, is durable, and just works. My Cardiology III became harder and harder to hear out of after a year and I just never had the time to figure out the problem until I lost it at work.

Those will test normal urine parameters, I think pH and Specific gravity are the only ones that the NIDA 5 pre employment test strip cups look for (i could be wrong, it's been a while).

These will test you for THC.

I need these from my health and personal care wishlist. They're electrodes for a TENS machine, which helps with my muscle and joint pain, after I have seizures. I only have four, right now, and the adhesive is getting weak, so they don't work anymore.

Here's a smaller, cheaper one, so others can get more.

u/BrutalHonestyBuffalo · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I regularly use a TENS for other issues I have.

Talked to my OB and she was onboard for me using it during pregnancy and labor if I desired.

I got one through my insurance - it was astronomical and didn't feel as good as the "medical grade" TENS units they use at a PT facility.

I returned that one (it was like 400$ - absurd), and tried a few different ones.

I bought this one from Amazon - it is amazing and does an excellent job for much cheaper(30$)! Weee!
I also bought these pads as replacement.

But seriously - it is far, far better than the one I received through prescription and it is the third one I tried off of Amazon (after learning about it from others with my genetic disorder). Highly recommended!

Not sure if you have ever used one before - but definitely make sure you understand how to put the pads on correctly before you use it!

u/Deepinmind · 5 pointsr/MechanicAdvice

Oddly nobody said stethoscope, but at least in my school, we need a stethoscope starting from the first year. For my first year, i used an Omron Stethoscope. I'm not sure what country you are in so dunno if that Amazon link is useful, but it was insanely cheap ($11 USD) and worked just fine for preclinicals. I'm upgrading for third year to a Littmann (still not terribly expensive, around $70 US) mostly because the Omron is a big weight on your neck after being there for 8 hours.

u/wicksa · 4 pointsr/nursing

I have never used a knockoff littmann, or seen one that I know of. I would be weary of a $10-15 stethoscope. You want something decent for school because you are just learning things like how to take a manual B/P, how to auscultate heart and lung sounds, etc and you want to be able to hear what you are listening for. I have used a cheap stethoscope (something like one of these) and it sucks. I had trouble getting a b/p because it was hard to hear.

You don't have to go all out and get a Cardiology III or anything, or even a littmann. There are other decent stethoscopes out there, but get one you can hear with. I used a littmann lightweight in school and it was decent and it only costs about 40 bucks on amazon. If you buy the right stethoscope now, you shouldn't have to buy a new one when you graduate, think of it as an investment. Just put your name on it so it doesn't walk away.

Here's the classic II in (what most nursing students use) in navy blue for $68.

Here's The lightweight for $39.99 in burgundy, the other colors are $44.

Here's an AdScope for $15-$18. I've never used one, but it has good reviews and I have heard of the brand before, so it might be worth a shot if you are truly that strapped for cash.

u/trahnse · 4 pointsr/nursing

I swear by my BATCLIP. I clip it to my left pocket on my scrub pants and I don't even notice it's there anymore.

I used to wear mine on my neck. My preceptor and I had a patient turn crazy on us and he went after my steth. I got this clip shortly after and have been using it for over four years. The clip is super secure and the velcro still grips like the first time!

u/DuplexSuplex · 4 pointsr/nursing

What the majority of other's have said, but with a link! Here is my stethoscope, it blew my shitty nursing school one out of the water:

I recommend getting one that is NOT black, just get her favorite color, unless it happens to be black, then get her, like, blue. People beat stethoscopes, unfortunate, but true. The lightweight is boss and serves any and all of my Med-Surg needs.

u/StaphAttack · 3 pointsr/intermittentfasting

Yes, ladies are natorious for holding water weight. It is pretty common for women to start a weight loss routine, not see any change in the scale for a month, then quit out of discouragement.

I'm a dude and I can swing 5 lbs in a day easy. Salty food, stress, hormones, carbs, activity level all lead to fluctuations is water weight. I finally bought a cheap skin fold measurement device because watching the scale was so stressful. Even waist measurements can fluctuate an inch in a day. Skin folds are very consistent.

You don't have to calculate your body fat percentage, just keep track of the measurements.

I think you are doing awesome! You are obviously very dedicated. Don't get too frustated, you will get there. Like the rest of us it just takes tinkering and figuring out.

I would track you calories over the next week and report back what you find. You want to make sure you are not undereating as well as overeating. Undereating can lead to heavy water retention due to stress - I'm concerned this may be your situation.

How is your mood? Do you feel tired or energetic? Are you sleeping well?

u/pcadrian · 3 pointsr/ketogains

It all depends what you are trying to accomplish. If you want to maximize muscle building, you are better off doing less reps (4-6 range) with a higher weight.

Your approach is excellent if you are not too concerned with maximizing your muscle growth, but are more focused on burning fat. A year ago I was on a program that had me lifting lighter weights in the 10-12 rep range, while doing supersets (2 exercises back to back, it was very HIIT oriented), and it was extremely effective in helping me burn fat. It was a lot of fun doing it too.

I think following what you're doing now is good, and will get you results. Once you get at a lower bodyfat percentage, you can always switch your routine and train for muscle growth.

I recommend you start keeping track of your calories, even temporarily just to give you an idea of where you are with your meals. MyFitnessPal (and the app) is great, and the ketogains calculator was extremely accurate for me. Also, get a bodyfat caliper and measuring tape. I use this caliper and it's quite cheap and accurate, and or the tape I got this. If you start building muscle and losing fat, the scale won't be a good indicator of your progress. Keep consistent track of your measurements, like a weekly log, and take them at the same time of day (I do it in the morning after going to the bathroom).

u/Homesteading · 3 pointsr/keto
u/Canned_Bacon · 3 pointsr/trees
u/outremer84 · 3 pointsr/progresspics

That's a big question but if you take it step by step you'll be able to make progress.

Firstly, do you know you're body fat percentage? By looking at your picture I'd guess maybe 12-17%. If you don't know the cheapest and easiest way to check is to use an accu measure caliper. Dirt cheap on Amazon.

Then, use the Katch-McArdle formula on this site:

Calculate your total daily energy expenditure, add 15-20% to account for bulking and gradually build up you intake by 100-200 kcal per week until you reach your new calorific intake.

Id imagine if you do the calcs you'll end up bulking somewhere between 2500-3000 kcal per day (careful though, if you're an endo/meso like me this may be too high hence the gradual increase).

Bulk up to 15% BF then cut down to 10%. Rinse and repeat!

Heavy, compound lifts, low reps (4-6 for three sets), 3-5 exercises per muscle group. Deadlift, squat, military press, bench press should form the basis of your training. Don't go crazy on the cardio while bulking.

Monitor weekly or daily and tweek accordingly. Ignore people (even me!), and find a system that works, but that's the general starting outline for bulking.

Muscle for life is the website companion to the book I mentioned. Gold mine of info. If this was too much of an info dump, sorry. Or if you knew it already, ignore me.

u/sknick_ · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Check your bodyfat % with a $5 caliper to see where you are at.

If you are really about 16%, I would continue to cut down to ~12-13%, then bulk to 17%, repeat. 3-6 months in each phase, weight changing by about 1 lb per week. Set a basement weight, and each time you come back down to that weight see if you have a slightly lower body fat measurement - which would mean you built & retained more lean mass than you had last time at the same weight.

Calipers are not so expensive.

u/obmckenzie · 3 pointsr/loseit

The bf% on scale can be notoriously inaccurate, but there isn't really a way to get an accurate reading on this without going to a research facility and using their dexascan or water weighing machines.

Personally, I have a little caliper and do that as well as measurements. They are usually close enough to the same measurement for me.
I use this calculator:

u/G3TG0T · 3 pointsr/100DaysofKeto

u/YodaGreen · 3 pointsr/nursing

Adscope 609ST is what I use.

No it's not as good as the more expensive ones but it comes pretty close. And after losing a $300 electronic one, then a $200 cardiology master, well I have to say I am more emotionally attached to this $20 gem than I ever have been to any other I have owned.

I'm not saying the expensive ones aren't better, they certainly are. But after many years of experience and being able to tell the difference between artifact and the sounds I'm looking for. The expensive ones were never needed.

Honestly IMO the most important part of a stethoscope is the ear pieces. Buy some replacement littmann ear pieces and put them on a disposable isolation scope and you'll start wondering why you ever forked out so much for a scope.


I would just like to add that technique is more important than your stethoscope. Make sure the diaphragm is completely against the skin or at most over the gown without any leads, wires, or anything else obstructing a complete seal. Then have your patient take a deep breath, then cough.

The bell of a simple stethoscope is important too, which is why I prefer this $20 scope over something even cheaper like the isolation crap. Just get that seal on the diaphragm and those soft ear buds sealed in your ear. That's all you need.

u/nursewords · 3 pointsr/CRNA

haha I second the ultra fine tip sharpies!! They are essential! Some of the stuff I've gotten along the way were cute/funny badge holders (retractable), scrub hats, nice stethoscope (if she doesn't have one already)/steth holder - after using and hating many of the plastic ones I finally sprung for the leather batclip and I love it (as a student you always have to have your steth on you while walking around and you have to have your hands free)

This book was like gold to me doing peds cases.

For classroom, a lot of people in my class, including me, used these. They write really smooth and fine and all the colors are useful in notes - especially with things like anatomy. She'll need an endless supply of computer paper. I used a good many index cards (ruled).

Good luck to you! It's a very difficulty journey. Try your best to not take things too personally and prepare yourself for a lot less quality time together. It's very difficult to explain it to someone on the outside, but this program actually fundamentally changed me as a person. It hardens you. It's not a bad thing necessarily, but I often think that I'm not the same person that my husband fell in love with!! We stuck it out together and are as happy as ever, but there are definitely plenty of relationships and marriages that don't survive this - so be ready to fight for it!

Honestly, I don't get to check it very often because he won't let me. He's fine when a doctor does it but I can barely put it in before he swats me away. The one I got has a little picture chart to compare to, so that was nice. I think they key is to do it semi often, even when they're not sick, so you get some practice and know what it's supposed to look like and the kiddos get used to it. The one I'm linking came with 2 different sized disposable tips for adults and kids and was $40 but you can get different ones by the same company (Dr. Mom) for cheaper.

u/drefan_rahl · 2 pointsr/sex

Tomorrow at some point, tell him that you need to talk to him as soon as he has time. I don't know if you guys live together, live close by or what your situation is. But tell him that you need to talk at his earliest conveniance. Don't take no for an answer, unless he has a really good reason, like work or something. Don't let him smoke beforehand, that might not let him comprehend the seriousness of the conversation. As far as what to say to him during the conversation, that's up to you. But really stress the fact that you're there for him and that for the relationship to work, if something is going on then he needs to be open with you about it. Quite frankly if he is pulling away from you and isn't willing to be open with you about his health/personal life then maybe the relationship isn't as serious as you might think it is. And maybe you need to rethink things. And by things, i mean your relationship with him.

But have the talk first, maybe all it takes is a little reassurance that you are there to help him.

Also in regards to the blood pressure thing, if the doctor prescribed blood pressure medication, then it's serious enough that he needs to take it. As an EMT(and paramedic intern) I can safely say that taking a blood pressure is easy enough to do. If you care enough about him, and have a few bucks saved up, go spend 50 bucks on buying a cheap blood pressure cuff and a cheap stehoscope and learn to take his blood pressure yourself. It takes about 45-60 seconds and is super easy. if I can do it you can, as a matter of fact, if you go that route, msg me and I'll teach you. Or you can spend a bit more and get an in-home automatic blood pressure machine. But seriously, high blood pressure is not something you want to ignore.

The Littman 2 classic is a classic for a reason - solid build quality at a modest price. If you want to save a couple bucks, the Kila standard model is virtually indistinguishable from the Littman 2. Also: don't get anything with double tube style ( ). They usually have trash sound quality due to the two tubes rubbing against each other.

Caliper. It's cheap and consistent. Read the directions carefully and then measure yourself a ton for practice. Keep practicing until your measurement comes up the same.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Fitness

It sounds like you want to measure your Body Fat Percentage. You need to visit a clinic for an accurate measurement, but if you want to do it at home, you can get pretty close with the Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper. It tells you your body fat percentage by measuring skin folds. It will take some practice to get it right, but it should tell you what you need to know.

If you find that your body fat percentage is going up, lift more and increase your protein intake.

u/MettaWorldWarTwo · 2 pointsr/AMA

Get a body fat caliper and a cloth measuring tape. Take measurements weekly. Body fat caliper comes with instructions but pick a few "problem areas" and "growth areas" for the measuring tape (upper thigh, waist, stomach, chest, biceps, calf). Weight is a terrible measure of health. What matters most is what percentage of your weight is unnecessary fat vs healthy bones, muscle, organs and necessary fat. Since it requires two to do the measurements, and you're married, do it after frisky times :)

> Also, what is a good body fat calculator?

It's difficult to accurately estimate body fat %, especially with an online calculator. DXA scans are the most accurate method, and can usually be found in universities or training centers. Body fat calipers are a much cheaper and more convenient method but aren't as accurate. The scales devices that measure electrical conductivity aren't accurate at all.

I used to use a Littman II Classic SE, and it was good. After losing/misplacing it on a flight last year, I decided to go with the ADC Adscope 615st (Tactical). This has become my favorite stethoscope by far. Here's the link:

u/coloneljdog · 2 pointsr/NewToEMS

I take a backpack with me everyday to work with daily essentials I need to survive 12+ hours, including water jug, snacks, laptop, headphones, easy homework/books to study, and ibuprofen for after bariatric calls -_-. As far as a gear goes, do NOT go all out. You don't want to be that brand new IFT EMT that shows up with a tactical bat belt with fanny packs, stethoscope holsters, raptors/shears, flashlights, penlights, and a pocket knife.


Your company will provide you with: pen lights, generic stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, and disposable trauma shears. If you're working at a BLS IFT company, they should provide you with a pulse ox as well. If they do not, then you are not required to purchase one of your own.


You should bring: blue/back-ink pens (have a couple spares in your backpack), clipboard that you can store confidential documents in, a sharpie, and small pocket notepad. If you already own your own stethoscope, you can bring that, however, you do not need to go purchase a fancy stethoscope. At most, all you will use your stethoscope for as a BLS IFT EMT is for blood pressures and the occasional lung sounds, and the generic stethoscope your company provides will be able to do that. If you do decide to purchase your own stethoscope, I recommend not spending more than $50 on one. I personally recommend ADC Adscopes over Littman's (better bang for your buck in my opinion). I have the ADC 615 stethoscope in black tactical and greatly enjoy it.


You do not need to bring: a pocket knife (I've been in the field for almost four years and have never once needed a pocket knife for anything that trauma shears couldn't handle, though if you want to keep one in your backpack, all the power to you), fancy trauma shears (such as Raptors), any sort of pouches or first aid kits that attach to your belt (yes, I have seen new EMTs wearing these. It is completely unnecessary unless you are doing Special Events/Standbys), and weapons of any kind (tasers, pepperspray, etc). I had a new EMT trainee show up with pepper spray hanging off his belt once. Not a good look.

u/LurkingGrue · 2 pointsr/saplings

Tolerance depends on how frequently you smoke, how much you smoke, and how long you've been smoking. It also depends on your weight and how much fat you have (THC is fat soluble).

I'm cutting back from a bowl a day right now. A bowl-a-day habit will build up tolerance rather quickly.

My recommendation: cut off weed. Taper your consumption if necessary. After 2-3 weeks or so, [drug test]( "You can also get the strips at your local pharmacy.") yourself. If you fail, keep testing every so often.

Once you're clean, your tolerance should be back down to the point where a small bowl is adequate.

Are ADC's avalible in Australia? I was having trouble going between littmans after freak accidents broke them so I bought some cheap ADC's from Amazon. And in my opinion it works almost as well as a littman does and it's a better value from a cost/benefit standpoint.

Littman cardiology 4. Get it engraved with her name. Yeah it's expensive, like $200 but she'll use that thing every shift and she'll have it for years. I also have a "batclip" for mine because I have a horrible habit of leaving it on bedside tables, and I hate wearing it around my neck because it's so heavy. Link to the batclip and stethoscope below. It's $30 bucks for the clip but its totally worth it.

This is the best. I've used this every shift through all three years of my residency and it held up through all the abuse.

The Best Trauma Shear
You will lose a handful of trauma shears during your residency, so get a box of cheap ones, make a habit of keeping track of them, then get this really nice (but expensive) one.

Ignore my post. I just reread your question, and it is about hair tests, not urine tests.
From what I have read, hair tests are much more sensitive. I believe THC can be detected in hairs for up to 90 days.


As mentioned before, buy a THC Urine Test kit.

I purchased a 50ng and 20ng test kit on Amazon, out of curiosity. I am retired and don't need to pass a drug test.

Here are links to what I bought. There may be better deals/products, so look around.

I have been vaping four different vape pens with the following CBD/THC content.
1:1, 3:1, 4:1, and 10:1

These vape pens have a lot more THC than a Hemp CBD product, which I believe has no more than 0.3% THC (almost nothing).
But some folks have reported failing a drug test using the Hemp CBD. So you need to be concerned.

For about 30 days I was smoking these different vape products about every other day. On the days I would vape, I would vape about 2 to 3 times a day.

I then tried the 50ng urine test, which I failed.
I then stopped vaping for about 7 days and tried the test again.
This time I passed.
I waited a few days more, and tried the 20ng, which I also passed.

So, IMO, if you don't vape for 7 days or more, you should likely pass a 50ng test, and maybe a 20ng test.
But you need to test yourself to be sure.

u/saidyestothedress · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

My LO is only three months, but my SIL with a 4 year old and 22 month old suggested I invest now in an ear scope like this one so that you can take a peek at home and if you see inflammation take him in to the doctor. If not, then you can feel more assured that he doesn't have an ear infection and he's just dealing with a cold, and since a cold is a virus all you can do is treat the symptoms anyway you're already doing what you can. She said it was also really useful for teething - one of her sons would only have a fever with an ear infection so this helped her know if his fever was an ear infection or teething.

u/SuzyQ93 · 2 pointsr/keto

Decongestants. Heat on that side. Either a thermophore (moist heat), or a warm washcloth. That's if you actually have congestion in them. If they just feel stopped up, but aren't really - not sure what to tell you.

Also, get one of these. Obviously, you can't use it on yourself, but if you have a partner or friend who is willing to help you out, you can learn to see for yourself (secondhand, lol) what's really going on in there when you feel stopped up. I got one years ago to verify for myself what was going on when my kids were getting cranky or misbehaving - can't tell you how often it was because they had an ear infection, but weren't displaying typical pain or fever symptoms.

Jk. I would go with a good pair of sunglasses, a stethoscope, or pens. All the pens. People are really particular about scopes (especially around here), but I'd recommend a Littmann Lightweight.

You may notice plastic debris, but if you do hot oil changes you might not. The plus side of springs is that they don't really wear out (when you get good ones).

Multiple ways, depending on the shot.

Stick a camera on a tube down the burrow. Like this:

Some times the animal is put in a specially made cage like a fish aquarium, so the animal thinks it's in a burrow but it's really in a giant glass cage and a normal camera can film from the outside.

Or even hidden cameras in a artificial den that's made to look like a real den.

Overall it's worked but it's a PITA to get started. The App it uses is garbage and it's hit or miss if it will actually run on my phone (Pixel 2). Sometimes it freezes and I have to start the connection and everything over again. If the camera has sat for more than a week I have to recharge it before it will work. The camera will still turn on and it will connect to my phone, but it won't send any video.

Over all I'm pretty disappointed, I was hoping for something that was a little less hassle to use. It seems like I spend more time futzing with the thing to get it working than I do actually using it.

u/EntrepreFreak · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Yup. Take the vent cover off, stick your camera (phone on selfie stick?) into the duct and snap a picture. The flash will light up as much of the duct run as it can and you'll see if there is a dead animal, old food, or something else in the duct.

You can also call an HVAC company or buy [one of these] small $15 cameras for your own phone. Check deeper than you may be able to see.

u/Johnny_Lawless_Esq · 1 pointr/xxfitness

THAT is badass. That has success written all the fuck over it. Focus on that.

On a slightly different note, pullups are a great measure of body composition because if you're fat, you aren't doing pullups, period.

My personal suggestion is to forget about weight entirely. Get yourself a pair of skinfold calipers and start tracking your body fat percentage instead.

u/carsonmcd · 1 pointr/Fitness

Everyone has some rolls when they sit down. If you really want to get an objective look on what your BF% is, invest in some cheap skinfold calipers. They measure how much fat by the actual thickness of your skin in millimeters, and this pair comes with a handy guide that helps you convert those numbers into BF%. Skinfold calipers are great to have not just for seeing progress on cuts, but also to help you quantify lean muscle gain vs fat gains on bulks. For 15 bucks, it's totally worth it.

As to advice for what to do, cardio and diet. Specific advice for cardio, duration matters more than intensity when it comes to losing weight. Get your heart rate up to at least 50% of its maximum, and keep it there. You don't need to be running a 6 minute mile, jog at a comfortable pace and do it for 30 minutes a day. As long as you hit your protein requirements, you won't see any loss in your sweet gainz, they'll just be revealed for the world to see.

u/waterboysh · 1 pointr/keto

They really do sound good enough to do everything except differentiate murmurs, especially if you get some soft earpieces. Plus then if it walks away or gets poop on it or something you didn't just lose a hundred bucks on a medical assistant's salary. A bit heavy though.

u/prelabsurvey · 1 pointr/Fitness

They measure skin folds, like these accumeasure

u/619shepard · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

You can use calipers, induction measuring, or displacement. Once you have a number for your body fat percentage, you'll multiply your weight by your body fat percentage to get a fat weight (example: 160lb * .2 = 32lb fat) subtract that from total weight to get lean body weight (160 - 32 = 128).

u/greedhead · 1 pointr/BulkOrCut

I don't think there's a ton of variability in quality for calipers honestly - anything should work fine. This one is well reviewed.

u/RandomLoLs · 1 pointr/Fitness

Use cheap Calipers like these from Amazon

They are pretty accurate and you can find websites and directions online on how to measure points on your body that will give you a very accurate bf%

u/Dread1840 · 1 pointr/WaterFasting

You can use photos and try to compare to online photo estimates (google images has charts), you can buy a caliper to pinch a fold of skin, some scales you step on can estimate it, all of these options are never 100% accurate. If you have dough to spare you can get a DEXA scan, which shows all of your mass and breaks it down for you into fat, muscle, bone, etc. Some gyms or trainers might have better scales than the home scales, but again that may come with a cost. If money is an issue, get a set of bodyfat calipers on amazon and combine multiple pinch measurements with online photo charts, and try to estimate that way.

Here's the one I have:

Real talk though, I would rather just get a scan every once in a while. I'm not a competing athlete so frequent metrics I don't care about much.

u/snap355 · 1 pointr/loseit

If you really want to get a more accurate reading on your BF%, try using calipers.

u/general-information · 1 pointr/Fitness

I'd guess 12-13%; its hard tu guess without typical indicator like abs because you don't have a ton of muscle. You should definitely bulk though because you don't have enough muscle to cut into. If you want a better body fat estimate, get one of these "Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper". They are consistent one you get the hang of them.

u/sheath2 · 1 pointr/loseit

I'm not an expert on the bulk/cut cycle, but I don't think it's impossible, just easier to do separately. I've lost weight VERY slowly, but I know I've built muscle/strength in my shoulders and arms over the past 6 months. Whether this is the same thing or not, I don't know.

These are calipers. They measure bodyfat percentages.

Here were the directions I was given to use them: (instructions courtesy of /u/theycallhimhellcat )

Measure on the right side of the body:
measure the skin between the nipple and the arm pit (diagonal)
measure the skin by pinching belly button and to one side (horizontal)
measure the skin in the middle of my thigh (vertically)

To measure, you just grab skin with your right hand and pinch, place the caliper about 1/2 inch away from your pinch, and close it till it pops into place. Add up the 3 measurements and plug it in to a calculator and you get your BF%.

I just read your posts below about wanting to gain muscle without actually bulking heavily. With your scoliosis, I think the yoga would help a lot because it focuses on spinal strength and stability. If you get into lifting, the advice I was given for that is lighter weights, more repetitions. You build strength and definition, but not bulk.

u/djkrugger · 1 pointr/Fitness

>have never measured body fat, but would like to do that

You don't need those fancy digital meters. These do the job and are dirty cheap.

u/de_shrike · 1 pointr/loseit

A cheap solution to estimate body fat percentage would be to buy a [fat caliper] ( and figure out how to use it. From what I've heard, the accuracy is directly proportional to correct usage, so make sure you have a way to get that in. Much cheaper than the complicated tests (like water immersion) though.

u/IAMtheLightning · 1 pointr/loseit

hit the weight room! and don't let the scale rule you. if you want a measurement to track that is a more accurate reflection of your body composition start tracking your body fat %. an inexpensive caliper is all you need.

u/tgsmith489 · 1 pointr/ketogains

This can be pretty subjective and without peeling the fat off your body and measuring it there's no way to know 100%. That being said there's a few things you can do to get a general idea.

First, you can compare yourself to some of the pictures out there and try to guess where you fit in. Example

Another option is to get some calipers and measure yourself. I've had these recommended to me and they seem to work pretty well.

At the very least, you can get calipers or a tape measure and keep track of trends, even if you don't have your exact bf%.

u/Timahoj · 1 pointr/loseit

My guess would be Body Fat Calipers.

u/xraystyle · 1 pointr/Fitness

You can use a caliper to ballpark it, or you can find a scale that will tell you your approximate body fat percentage. I personally use the Fitbit Aria Scale.

I also carry a Fitbit One with me wherever I go. The Fitbit gives a pretty good estimate of the number of calories I burn each day just walking around doing stuff, and I can add in the calorie burn from my workouts on the Fitbit website as well. I keep track of everything I eat on the site too, so I can see exactly how much I'm eating vs how much I'm burning.

From my personal experience, I thought counting calories or macros was unnecessary, a pain in the ass, whatever, and that I could just 'eyeball' it and I'd be fine. Truth is I actually had no clue how much I was eating and how many calories I was burning each day. I was way overestimating my burn and underestimating my consumption. I was lifting and getting bigger, but I was putting on fat too.

You might want to look into doing a Leangains cut, a lot of people seem to get great results from it. Start reading here:

EDIT: Also, have a look at this image:

See where you fit along that spectrum and it may give you some idea of where you are and where you want to be.

EDIT 2: I think you're also doing way too many reps on the bench. Shoot for 4 sets in the 8-10 rep range. If you want some size to your muscles, stay away from high reps. If your goal is pure strength, up the weight and drop down to about 5 reps per set.

u/VV4DE · 1 pointr/ketogains

I'd guesstimate 25%. I started at 23.3%, down to 20.6%. Got these fat calipers to measure. I had to watch some youtube videos to get it right and I know it's not 100% accurate but it's something. Enter your measurements here.

I bought this one when it was on sale for about $20. If you find one like this I'd recommend it. The school has some cheap ones we use but I can never hear anything to well.

We work on a lot of poor people. I had one guy who had a BP of 220/130. He needed to go to the ER. I personally think they are good investments but everyone has a different opinion.

Your opiate point also reminds me of something I went through: opioid-induced hyperalgesia. Basically, with long term opiate use, the thing that's supposed to treat pain causes you more pain and makes you hypersensitive to stimuli.

Also, I went to let you know you can get one for $25 on Amazon for yourself, aswell as enough pads for a very long time for $20. Make them last by not changing the pads very often, even when they loose stickiness they still have the conductive gel so I use cheap medical tape to stick them on.

Can't say it sounds much different, but possibly a lack of power between 2,000-3,000 rpm and then there's a power surge above 3,000. I only drove about 15 miles total today, with short trips making up the first half of those 15. The trip back home was a straight shot at highway speeds.

As for fire, whatever is up there, I'm guessing twigs, leaves or seeds/shells. It smells like burning wood or leaves rather than plastic, oil or rubber.

Maybe I can run a scope like this one.

My first goal is to diagnose it properly, I don't really want to go too far based on my assumption without confirmation. I'm not getting a CEL or any codes from a scan tool which is why I'm assuming any issue is after emissions sensors. Should I check for a blockage using a vacuum gauge?

You don't need a mechanic, you need a Priest. Ritual exorcism. Holy water and all that, lots of smelly incense.

OK. Golden rule in Computer troubleshooting - If the problem is repeatable, it's software. If it's random, bad hardware.

At this point I'm sorta thinking electronics.

  1. Bad Z switch (I got a spare in my parts kit with the printer) change it.

  2. Loose wire. Those JST connectors (small white ones used everywhere) are notorious for getting a connector pushed back into the plug housing when plugged in. Connects, but intermittently. Check the Z switch plug on both ends (open the control box) with an Eye loupe and pull each wire with tweezers, see if they move.

  3. Same on the Z motors.

    That's all I got for now, still pondering, but the wires are a real possibility, I had one on a fan in my control box.

If you actually dropped the clip down the ports, that motor is going to need a rebuild. Here's a cheap endoscope you can get that hooks up directly to your phone.You'll need to take a look to see what's really going on.

At this point, you have two options (on the assumption that the clip is in there and doing damage). You can either get yourself a junkyard 5.3 and swap it out (definitely the cheapest option), or undertake a rebuild.

N.B. Let this be a lesson to anyone else reading that isn't already aware. Always plug your ports when working on a motor. I use shop towels, works pretty good and doesn't leave behind a lot of fibers. If you don't, it could easily cost you your entire motor.

Pulling ethernet cable will be easier without an RJ45 end on it, so you may invest in a crimper set, but you can buy pre-crimped cables and only cut one side off to save you from having to do both. Most all of the holes have likely already been drilled in your stud out to the doorbell location and have room in each hole to string a CAT cable through there. So then it comes down to trying to minimize the number of access holes you cut. You typically need one hole per stud bay, but sometimes you can get lucky and poke the cable through a stud bay and avoid needing another hole there, if the holes are inline and you just get lucky.


You might invest in a cheap phone borescope, and some fiberglass "fiberglass rods".

I'm not one for filling huge pockets with stuff and we're required to have enough of the standard bits and pieces but there's two extra things I've found that I love:

Snapit ampoule opener - not necessary but personal deficiencies mean I've never managed 100% ampoule opening success by hand and this thing does it perfectly every time, is small and durable, ideal for EMS use. Obvciously no point if not using glass amps but I no longer hate metoclopramide now because of this thing.

Batclp - leather steth clip that feels like something you'd hold a gun with or something, very durable and simple but the only product I can find that works so well and is so simple. Handmade and a bit pricey much like the snapit but the best way to keep a steth neat and attached to something I can find.

A quality steth is the standard gift and there's a lot of Littmann Classic IIs in daily use that have rattled around ambulances for decades since someone left training school.

Muscle weights four times what fat does, so it's possible that you lost a lot of muscle and gained some fat.

Scales are deceiving. BMI is the only way to go. EDIT: Whoops, I meant body/fat ratio! Preferrably using a skinfold caliper.

the dr. mom ones seems to be the most common for home use:

if i decided to do this, i would take the time to study up on how to look and what to expect to see and do several checks when ears were in good shape. its just a matter of weighing whether the time + money is worth it to invest in order to have a better idea of what's going on without having to go to the doctor every time. And I also just wanted to see if any parents had done this and how it went.
